OPINION: Reliable transportation is an important part of everyday life, from getting to work, to going to the doctor, to staying connected with friends and family. However, for nearly 8 million Californians with disabilities, transportation can be anything but reliable, especially for those who drive.

OPINION: For many Californians, access to a car means freedom of movement and independence, and it’s a simple way to get to and from work, attend social gatherings, go to the doctor, or get groceries for their families. But for those of us who have a disability and drive, it’s not always so simple; we have to plan everything.
